This study found that simulated sunlight rapidly inactivated SARS-CoV-2 suspended in either simulated saliva or culture media and dried on stainless steel coupons.
This study evaluated the impact of social distancing measures on the growth rate of confirmed COVID-19 cases across US counties between March 1, 2020 and April 27, 2020. The study predicted that COVID-19 spread would have been 10 times greater—meaning 10 million more cases—by Apr 27 without shelter-in-place orders. The study also found that without additional measures such as event bans, school closures, and closures of other venues such as restaurants and gyms, COVID-19 spread would have been 35 times greater, potentially resulting in 35 million more cases.
A new study from the University of Hong Kong demonstrates the combination of lopinavir/ ritonavir, ribavirin and interferon beta-1b shortens the recovery time from COVID-19 and reduces the viral load.
This study compared inpatient and intensive care unit utilization in both Wuhan and Guangzhou to the United States. This study suggests strict disease control strategies should be implemented early to mitigate the demand for inpatient and intensive care unit beds during a coronavirus disease 2019 outbreak.
This article compares the severity and mortality between male and female patients with COVID-19 or SARS. The results of the study are men and women have the same prevalence, men with COVID-19 are more at risk for worse outcomes and death, independent of age.
